Abstract

The development of organic devices has been focused in their miniaturization in order to obtain denser and faster electronic circuits. The challenge is to build the devices adding atom by atom or molecule by molecule until the desired structure is achieved. To do this job, techniques able to see and manipulate matter at this scale are needed. Scanning tunneling microscopy has been the selected technique by scientists to develop smart and functional unimolecular devices. This review article compiles the latest developments in this field giving examples of supramolecular systems monitored and fabricated at molecular scale by bottom-up approaches using STM at solid/liquid interface.
